Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Many

Bottom Line:   
These are the worst wheels I've owned. After every ride (30 miles) there are loose spokes and the wheel must be trued. Can't wait to replace these.

Strengths:    Sturdy, durable, smooth riding. They have a slight springiness that absorbs shocks well on bad road surfaces. Box-style rims minimize side-wind resistance.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavier and not as stiff as some other wheels around this price point. I am sometimes bothered by the lack of stiffness taking off and on tough climbs.

Bottom Line:   
These are great all-rounders. In this 32-spoke configuration with the reliable, serviceable Ultegra hubs, they are a great wheelset for heavy roadies like me who ride distance / endurance. They would be a great training wheelset for anyone. This has been my main road wheelset for four years, +6K miles. During all that time I have weighed over 200 Ibs, usually around 215Ibs as now, and I have been on a lot of rough roads, urban and rural. Yet in all that time, all I have had to do to these was true and re-dish the rear wheel once, and that was after three years. I have never broken a spoke on these and I have never replaced the bearings in the hubs. We recently moved to the Great Plains where winds are usually very strong and can gust up from multiple directions. A box rim like this is especially good for this kind of environment because it cuts down on side wind resistance. Even with these low-profile rims I have been literally blown off the road here a couple of times.
